I did well in his class when I had him as a social studies teacher in Francis Lewis HS. Remembered him constantly bring up "Double or Nothing Day" and how being in the classroom reminded him of being in "The Jerry Lewis Telethon". The only course that I struggled in was economics (analyzing stock reports). Other than that, it was a fairly good experience.

Was a student of his when he was a social studies and a independent study english (remember him showing "Shawshank Redemption") teacher at FLHS. Thanks for telling us some stories that you experienced (ex: the one about when you were in college and your class was assigned to write a paper on a different topic and your instructor turned your classes' work into a book) hard to grasp when was a preoccupied student but handy out of high school. :)
